Embossed Flower Sillouette

Once again, this card has some retired paper on it, but you could easily use other paper and get a beautiful result

I used River Rock (retired) cardstock for the base of this card. The stamp is from the "Inspired by Nature" stamp set, which I stamped with Versamark ink on some Designer Paper (also retired) and used white embossing powder over the image before heating it.

I tore the edge of the Blue Bayou textured cardstock (retired) and rolled up the torn edge before adhering it to the card beside the patterned paper. I tied the Mellow Moss grosgrain ribbon around the card front. The sentiment is stamped in Blue Bayou ink (retired) on Whisper White cardstock. I didn't tear these edges, but simply rolled them up. The white cardstock was adhered to the card with stampin' dimensionals for a bit more "pop"!

For a similar look, you could try this combination:
Designer Series Paper - Urban Garden
Sahara Sand cardstock (for the base)
Not Quite Navy in place of the Blue Bayou
Always Artichoke grosgrain

Don't forget to leave a comment to be entered into my July15th draw!
